Well after 2 weeks at this great resort and we are sadly back home. When we first arrived in Mexico, the airport was manic and nothing was laid out well it was jam packed like a maze, but after that was sorted, into the bus and to the hotel. The heat hit us as soon as we got off the...

Came back on 2.5.2015. The Riu Vallarta was amazing. Beautiful place, lovely friendly staff, from the cleaners to the reception the managers, everyone had time for you. The food is maybe a little repetitive but we found a good meal every night and we were there for 2 weeks. Lovely beach, good pools, entertainment good. We have nothing negative to...

We got this week at £680 each in a promo room - so no sea view. Outstanding value for money. The room was great, food was great, cocktails made fresh and the hotel pool and beach were amazing. The three restaurants that had to be booked were excellent. In order of my preference I would say St Georges first, the...

When we arrived we were greeted with a cocktail which was nice after an 11hr flight from the UK. Check in was quick and easy but that was down to being with a tour operator. Bags were dropped to the room for us and we were given our wristbands immediately to start our all inclusive holiday. The room was good...

Stayed for one week (April 24-May 1), good price on a package deal through Sunwing. My general impression was positive – not a full 5 star but certainly a solid, even though in this rating I’ll give it a 5. CHECK IN Check in was very quick considering we were an entire bus. Bracelets on and they have a package...

Being 4 couples, including my in-laws of almost 90 years old with many health restrictions, we planned our 2 weeks’ vacation including our family reunion at Riu Vallarta after lots of Google-ing and reading many reviews for different resorts. We found the atmosphere at Riu Vallarta very cultural, friendly and well taken care of. For a couple of unpredictable problems...

This was my very first all-inclusive stay so I cannot compare this experience to any other hotels in the area. But I LOVED my stay at the Riu Vallarta. I was there from April 24 - May 1. Check-in was smooth. We had requested a room with two beds, and when we had arrived we were originally given a king...
